We had hoped to leave Boise by 3pm on Thursday the 23rd of May and spend the night in West Yellowstone and pull into the park early on the 24th of May and leave on the 27th. Due to my husband's job we may have to alter those plans just a bit. If we have to, we will leave Boise late afternoon on the 24th and hope to arrive in the park sometime around 9pm or so (just don't want to have to give up that night in the cabin) and stay until the 28th. We will be staying at Lake Hotel Cabins the 24th checking out on the 27th no matter what. Can't get a cabin for the 27th so if we stay until the 28th we ill have to find accommodations elsewhere.
Knowing where we will be staying, what would be your recommendations for things to see each day? I know we will want to see some of the thermal features but wildlife viewing/photographing will be what we want to do the most. Keep in mind we've never been to YNP and in some instances having a hard time determining where some of these locations people speak of are actually located.......what area or what it's close to. I do have a map but sometimes still have a hard time finding these locations.
Thanks for any and all help.
btw......check out these baby owls I was fortunate enough to photograph this week. They are so darn cute. http://www.flickr.com/photos/41557079@N02/page1/
